Life’s Little Moments.

Jan 31, 2020

It’s all about life’s little moments. My younger sister, Molly, was my maid of honor when I got married and she gave the most amazing speech. It was about how we were chatting one day and I told her life and love isn’t about big grand gestures. It’s about all of life’s little moments. All those little moments add up to a happy life. At the time I thought that was about having an amazing life with Nick. Which is still true, but now those little moments are shared with Caitie and Lorelai.

Sure, the big @DisneyWorld trip was cool and memorable. But what makes us smile and laugh are all of life’s little moments Nick and I remember over our kitchen table. It’s the time Caitie helped Lorelai learn to walk. Or how Caitie would tell Lorelai, ‘don’t’ be scared, I’m right here’ when then were toddlers. It’s the way Lorelai would say unicorn or throw out a ‘bam what’. It’s the way our beloved Emmi would snuggle with us. It’s a million little memories. 

Life’s Little Moments. Curated.

How do we bring these little moments, these little slices of life, and turn them into big memories? It’s a little giggle, the wiggle of tiny toes, the way sisters hug, the way brothers hold each other’s hands. It’s about how the tiniest of actions create big bonds that last a lifetime. It’s the way those little moments naturally occur. It’s about not just capturing the moment; it’s about capturing the feeling. It’s about bringing a memory to life. It’s about turning a little memory into a living moment. 

Limited Edition Experience

I’m beside myself excited to introduce our Limited Edition Experiences. We curate life’s little moments with experiences like snuggling, reading and jumping on beds curating the memory through portraits and NOW ADDING FILM! Think of these minute and half to two-minute films as the trailer to your family’s story. A moment in time captured to remember forever.

We’re launching our Limited Edition Experiences with snuggle time.  Set on a crisp white and cozy cream bed, they’ll read a book and snuggle in the blankets.  There will be tickles, maybe jumping, a pillow fight or maybe even a tickle monster!

Obviously, their favorite stuffed animal is more than welcome as are their favorite pajamas. What’s unique is that we will capture their essence. Maybe it’s sweet, maybe it’s fun, maybe there are lots of giggle or maybe lots of yawns. No matter what the vibe, it will be made up of life’s little moments. Check out all the fun!
